This instalment of Hints and Hobbies includes two features for the budget-conscious fashionista: "How to make six hats from one"(just add tinsel) and "Hints on making an evening dress from a morning frock". Nostalgic cooks can relive the joys of cochineal and piping bags, and, this week's top-tip: how to smooth wrinkled neckties using jam jars and hot water. You'll never use your iron again.
